Brian Hansen

Documentary Film Maker, Editor, Video Producer, Location Sound Mixer

What’s Your Story?

I love a good story. The passion to tell them is what propels me. For more than 20 years, I have been producing videos and documentaries.

I worked for many years in video production and marketing roles at several organizations in Indiana and Illinois. At some point, I took the leap and struck out on my own to produce projects for businesses in Indianapolis. My focus has always been on integrating my clients professional identity and projecting a clear, concise message.

Over the years, I have produced a wide range of projects, and my favorite ideas always stem for the documentary medium.  Whether that is a documentary short of feature, the challenge of pulling the story out of someone fuels me.  My intense curiosity has driven my career and helped me push myself to learn new skills and find new stories to tell.

My personality is a strange combination of technical and creative skills.  I am just as comfortable researching a complex technical problem as I am getting creative behind the camera and in the edit. I have have always enjoyed bringing the latest video techniques into my projects.

Deliver Your Best Impression with Professional Video and Top Quality Audio

I am is a storyteller at heart. Each video is an opportunity to tell your distinct, original story. Professional video production can grab the attention of an audience, and deliver a message, in a way no other media can.

Unlike more static forms of communication, video is dynamic, allowing the subject to come alive. Whether it’s a marketing promotion, an inspiring testimonial, or a full-length documentary, the possibilities for expression are limitless.

The goal of any video is to make your audience react. This is achieved through expert filming techniques, music, voice-over, creative editing, and dramatic production effects. The end result gives scope to your message that reaches beyond the screen and incites your viewer to respond.
